Water supply in 888 areas or 69% of the 1,279 areas affected by the disruption in water supply following the suspension of the Sungai Selangor Phase 1, 2, 3 and Rantau Panjang water treatment plants due to pollution on Tuesday was fully restored as of 6am today.

Air Selangor said efforts are being made to restore supply to the remaining 391 areas.

“Consumers are advised to let water flow from the tap until it is clear before using it.

“Air Selangor hopes that consumers whose water supply has been restored will use it prudently to ensure the recovery process in other affected areas can be done smoothly and according to schedule,” it said in a statement.

Kuala Selangor recorded the highest recovery rate at 99%, followed by Kuala Langat (80%), Hulu Selangor (87%), Kuala Lumpur (75%), Petaling (60%), Gombak (55%) and Klang/Shah Alam (51%).

Air Selangor said alternative water supply assistance is available at public hydrants and local service centres for consumers affected by the disruption.
